read your articles every day for the past year or two. you have educated me. you have enhanced my knowledge of a lot of things that i have heard that comes out of the republicans or conservative talk-show hosts by criticize obama. after reading your article, i found out what i hear on a rush limbaugh and the michael savage show was absolutely a lie. host: you give us an example? caller: a whole solyndra tuition. i found out the facts by reading your article in our local paper. the whole solyndra thing started with the bush administration. guest: thanks for the kind words. i am glad that you are reading them in your local paper one thing we are trying to do, as much as we can, is get our work out in different ways. we have partnerships with television stations. have partnerships with newspapers. the one you are read for into in atlanta uses the truth-o-meter on state and local officials. i am glad to hear you are reading our work and their work and i am happy our word is getting out host:politifact looked at issues -- looks at issues like energy. what to do find overall? guest: a l

, six teachers and educators were taken from us at gun point. an act of senseless and incomprehensible violence struck at the heart of our families, of our schools, of our communities across the country. earlier this month shortly after newtown, all members of congress took an oath to protect and defend the constitution and the american people. to protect and defend, that is our first responsibility. today leaders of the house democratic caucus have come together to fulfill that duty to confront the challenge of gun violence in our society to enact, to ensure the safety and security of our communities. under the leadership of congressman thomson, mike thompson, our gun violence prevention task force keeps growing in number. our colleagues are submitting recommendations for legislation, the task force is working with outside organizations, and sharing the latest information on gun violence and steps we can take and must take to end it. today to strengthen the efforts of this task force and our democratic caucus, we will hear from americans with personal and professional experiences with
, and forefront of education and teacher tenure and evaluating school performance. she believes that great teachers and great schools can lead to great futures for america's children. >> this is the country of equal opportunity. this is the country where if you work hard and you do the right thing, you're supposed to be able to live the american dream. but, it's not a reality for our children, who grew up in poverty today because they attend failing schools, where they don't gain the skills and knowledge that they need to see that success in the long run. we owe them so much more. >> michelle rhee, the ceo and founder of students first, is an educator who believes that children, regardless of their background or circumstances can achieve any goal if they receive a great education through great teachers who put their students first. for 18 years, michelle has been involved in helping children become their best. right out of college, she became a teacher with teach for america, a in one of the poorest communities in baltimore. the achievement levels were low due to violence, poor nutrition a
health in terms of research, education, and policy. >> when you look at what has been that in the past, it has not got this very far. we have to do something different. we believe a national discussion, putting aside preconceived notions will have us move forward as a nation. >> for more, we're joined by colin goddard. on april 16, 2007, he was shot four times when a gunman armed with a 22 caliber semiautomatic handgun, 9 millimeter semiautomatic, went on a rampage at virginia tech. 32 people were killed. he and 16 others were injured. colin goddard now works with the brady campaign to prevent gun violence. he just returned from meeting with survivors and their parents in newtown. the british campaign was the first trip to meet vice president joe biden's task force on guns, and later colin is headed to the white house to attend president of his announcement on gun-control. he is joining us from washington, d.c.. welcome back to "democracy now!" though the announcement has not been made as of this broadcast, president obama says he is calling for a ban on assault weapons, and high-capac
career she has shown a constant and loving commitment to education and improving the lives of children. in addition to having served as superintendent of schools in three different connecticut communities, janet has served as a teacher, a school counselor, and a school psychologist. i met janet in the fire house which was the emergency center of newtown, connecticut on the afternoon of the shooting. janet was grieving. she was there with parents of children who didn't know if their children were going to come home. as we know, 20 of them did not. the next morning this brave woman sat around a conference table with members of her community and began plan on how to protect those children and their family. how to reopen the school and get children back to learning. she was putting sandy hook community first, the teachers, the children, and those families. she did it all the time with her heartbroken for her friend who is were cut down on that terrible day. janet, i know you will provide invaluable expertise to us. you are an expert on children, on teaching, but most importantly, and for o
is education. >> and the mayor says baltimore city schools des have thely need the cash to reach the goals. she says in order to educate children, more money is needed. >> heating systems, cooling systems, so we can make sure kids won't miss school when the temperatures rise. we need to make sure we're able to build new schools in neighborhoods that need new schools and we need that funding source. >> in the budget, governor o'malley has already budgeted $346 million. >>> now to the breaking news we brought to you first on good morning maryland. the algerian government is in the middle of an operation to free house tajes held in a compound. >> 10 were held but five are safe. the status of the others is unclear. the rescue operation is still far from over. >> reporter: the algerian military as attacked a gas facility where terrorists are holding people including americans. there has been casualties but they won't confirm. >> i think we have to prepare ourselves for the possibility of bad news ahead. >> reporter: secretary of state hillary clinton has been in contact with the algerian prime minis
that judgment and now you have to work with that in the best way you can. >> when i did the education outreach to federal judges, that's the biggest questions. generally they want to know can you help me do any better than my best clinical judgment? yeah, we can. we can design tests that can predict and they want to know how good can you get? risk assessments are getting better. they're getting a lot better. i look at risk assessments as i have identified the variables that promote risk so that i can develop treatment strategies to reduce those risks. so if you have somebody that scores very high in psychopathy and has all of the other risk factors that would suggest they're is an 80% chance of reoffending in four or five years, you can develop a tiered or strategic relief plan that would help mitigate those risk factors so that that person can be -- levels of risk can be brought down. that's how we think about risk management. i call it typically risk needs assessment, because once you understand the risks, then you can develop ways of mediating them and whether or not that's a brain differen
of education took over similar bus services for early education in a pregame program that was formally being done by the burden of transportation. it tried to use the same program. some of the companies sued and were taken to court at the time the partner education defended the standards for bidding practices and said this was portant to. the court ruled against them. now they're saying, our hands are tied. >> the court ruling said, if i understand, you cannot but those projections in there. >> for those services. there is a dispute between the union and department of education of whether this sort of bus contractors similarly pre-emptive from using these provisions. adam: this seems to me it is between the court in the union. of the corporate -- the course if you can put dominican but the men. >> you guys can modify the standards and preserve our system and comply. this is the administration that steve rowe this way into a third term trying to rewrite the rules around the second amendment. he can get things done and he wants to, but now he is saying his hands are tied. adam: last time we ha
education and senator schumer invited him to open the luncheon with lunch prayer in recognition of his long history of service. >> just really quick, to speak to the hispanic american community but in shuffling my notes i did miss the fact we wanted to make sure that everyone knew that merely evans williams who is the widow of medgar evers will also be doing the invocation and kicking it off and again this ties into the fact that this is an event that looks back at our history as a country to where the president wants to take us as a country. we think that will be a very nice way to open the event and towards the civil rights movement and part of not only the president's life but also the country's life. >> i just wanted to know how many people are coming and. [inaudible] >> from our standpoint i believe we are still finalizing the list of individuals who will attend and we will have more information on that in the coming days. traditionally the diplomatic corps has been seated upon the platform and there are 1600 guests that are seated on a platform including obviously the president, the v
spend on everything from education to public safety less as a share of the economy that has been true for a generation. that is not a recipe for growth. we have to do more to stabilize the finances over the medium and long-term, and also spur more growth in the short term. i have said i am hoping to making modest adjustments to programs like medicare to protect them for future generations. i also said we need more revenue for tax reform by closing loopholes for the wealthiest americans. if we combine a balanced package of savings from spending on health care and revenues from closing loopholes, we consult the deficit issue without sacrificing our investments in things like education that are going to help us grow. it turns out the american people agree with me. they listened to an entire year's debate over this issue, and they made a clear decision about the approach they prefer. they do not think it is fair to ask a senior to pay more for his or her health care or a scientist to shut down like that saving research so that a multi millionaire investor can take less in tax rates then a
education for the kids, but not everyone is buying it. we turn to ko im now who is with protesters outside henderson's home. >> reporter: we haven't seen any protesters yet. they're supposed to come from around the corner, but the chancellor says the move would save $20 million just in programming in its first year. about half of that would go to the schools getting new students, but the protesters say her math doesn't add up and some parts of the district will be disproportionately, if not unfairly, affected. we have the list of the schools spared from the original 20 proposed consolidations including francis stevens, garrison elementary, johnson elementary, malcomb x elementary and smothers. so some are relieved today. and may -- mayor vincent gray believes this will help speed up education reform. the protesters want a moratorium on the 15 schools that will be closed. the school system says they got feedback from thousands of people and the protesters have yet to be seen. back to you. >> you can imagine parents and kids are very passionate about saving their local schools. >>> presiden
have the very smart people just talking amongst themselves to educate us. so one of the questions that we're wanting to talk about today was the idea of free will in terms of the criminal justice system. and i would like to ask each of you, is there a definition of free will in the context of your individual work? we'll start with you, doctor. >> i would punt that one right over to david who is the expert in free will, and then we actually spent all last night debating this. david can start. >> ok. >> do you consciously choose to do that? [laughter] >> i think that free will is a mainly unhelpful concept and i think that you have to ask the question from the legal system and from the science perspective as to what free will might mean. on the science side, the question really is, and this is what we were debating, is the question whether you can operationally define free will so you can measure it? from a scientist's standpoint, a construct doesn't really mean anything if you can't measure it. i have been asked many, many newer scientists including ken, what exactly does free will
charts. now the way we are going, in terms of the percentage of g.d.p., what we spend on education, what we spend on health research, what we spend on so many necessary programs in this country is going to go down. the trend line is already there. what the republicans are essentially saying is to push it further. have further consequences in terms of health research. does that make sense? do the american people want that? the answer is no. we have to have balance. the problem within the republican conference of the house is there is too much imbalance. host: do you agree with this editorial -- guest: no one is suggesting relying only on taxation of the very wealthy. that is a sham target. no one is saying that. but let me point out, if we look at what has happened to middle-income families -- and i mentioned what is happening with the 401-k requirements, they're now dipping into their retirement on a massive basis. in 2010, the top 1% received over 90% of the income growth. that represents basically a very -- i represent basically a very middle-class district. i know the struggle to stay
't be where they are without having public education and building roads and everything. and you need to ask your g.o.p. where is yoush leader mitt romney. seems like he dropped out of sight. on the guns, i think they need to put inshunes on a gun like you do a car. host: so often we focus on the u.s. debt or deficit, we have exceeded now the dealt limit of $16.4 trillion. you can see in the upper left-hand side the debt clock. difficult choices on the debt if the u.s. think it's ceiling. the piece points out by mid february or early march the united states could face an unprecedented default unless it raises the debt ceiling. that was from tim geithner. further into the body of the "new york times" story i want to is share with you some of the numbers "the new york times" points out today. that could happen as early as february 15, if that happens by february 15 or early march, according to the by partisan policy center in analysis of what the government expects is $8 billion in revenue that day but it has $52 billion in spending that day, $6.8 billion in tax refunds, $3.5 in federal salari
, we must act now. for grace. for the 25 other innocent children and devoted educators who had so much left to give. for the men and women in big cities and small towns of fall victim to senseless violence each and every day. for all the americans who are counting on us to keep them safe from harm. let's do the right thing. let's do the right thing for them and for this country that we love so much. thank you. i'm going to sign these orders. [applause] [applause] [applause] >> in president obama's proposals, he calls for background checks on all gun buyers, a ban on high-capacity magazines and federal funds for police officers a couple schools. these require congressional approval. he also used his presidential authority to enact 23 measures that do not require the backing of lawmakers. the second actions include ordering federal agencies to make data available for background checks, the atf, and directing the centers for disease control to research gun violence. after president obama announced his new legislation and executive orders, philadelphia mayor michael nutter and family membe
, but making sure that we have a conversations in our public squares and arenas that we are educating each other about what is effective. like background checks. we know they are effective. if we are talking about how important they are, and if we can create a community aware, around these alternatives whether it is internet sales or gun show sales, and if we make them less likely to be be options for people to purchase, and if we create an environment where you are not going to have a gun show in our community, that is really all we are allowed to do. >> and let me make a push, because that seems right to many, but my concern about the prohibition areas, in the all-out ban, and also leading for the supreme court to have a stronger position on the second amendment, you get into an 18th amendment prohibition problem and the handguns are easily that people have them and easily hidden and creates a black market for them, so i love the language of the culture change, because that is what we did for cigarettes. we made it harder to smoke in public and sued the companies to pay to educate people
of violence into a culture of education and a culture of peacefulness? it takes money. we here in congress have that ability. preventing mass shootings by way of banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, certainly something we should do. we need to get at the issue of violence that affects us with respect to handguns used primarily in inner-city areas to kill people. i am not advocating for a ban on handguns. do not get me wrong. i will say we need to address the issue of violence in our culture. i would like to know what kinds of resources are available to help students and help people in the community, adults, who have an emotional or mental disorders and whether or not we need to put more resources into that area. >> thank you. >> thank you very much. thank you for being here for your amazing testimony. i want to follow up on the mental health question as well. i do not know if you could identify. immediate steps cities and schools can take to identify -- there is no other place for them to go. many people who could benefit from treatment are incarcerated and on the other han

. okay mr. willard? >> i would offer the question of education and trains as a potential lesson here is an excellent one. it is one of the significant lessons from fukushima. we frankly find that there very often training lessons learned from any number of occurrences throughout industry. in this particular case, when you think about the magnitude of the event and the situation that the operators at this particular nuclear site found themselves in, it was unpress kented in any of the education and training. i think one of the hess sons is to take that idea of a mag feud event that exceeds what we general design in to our sites and going both educate what defense and depth can really provide and train to the coping strategies in a situation like that that would be, you know, that may allow the level of resilience that may not have been designed in to site in the first place. it's just, you know, this was remarkable in the scope there were courageous operators that remain at the watch at the fukushima attempting to mitigate what happened to them. obviously, in retrospect additional edu

will essentially be cut close to have been the next decade. and so, we are talking about education programs. were talking about health programs, including nih research. were talking about infrastructure. we're talking that key domestic discretionary programs that are so important for the lives of the vast majority of the american people. so let me just say two things about that. number one, there has to be a balance. and number two, i think it is fido, as the president said so clearly yesterday, that the debt ceiling essentially must not use to say what then that essentially takes on and essentially undoes the basic full faith and credit of the united states of america. the president made so clear what would he have staked if that were to happen and i just think it's so critical that not occur. you know, i've been through these battles as i've said for many decades, but i don't remember anyone essentially saying we should go over the cliff in terms of the full faith and credit of the united states. the consequences with teeth, i think, to not take, potentially cataclysmic. and for the republicans
. we think that is very important at the brady center. we're involved in public education campaigns to educate people about the risks of guns and educate clinicians' about what they should know and to educate the public about what they can do to prevent gun crimes before they happen. there are a lot of sensible proposals that we can do to get at all aspects of this complex problem. host: this tweet from bill badey. is there a definition for that? guest: i think he means a gun show sell. that is not going to be relevant for the current debate. we have gone past that. people talked about closing the gun show loophole. the problem with that is that it is still left open internet sales and sales in the parking lot of those shows. we have gone past that. it will not be of little significance if we can require background checks on all gun sales. it will close the classified ad loopholes and all gun sales under one place. it is similar if we sold controlled substances where you would say the law requires you to get a prescription from a doctor and go to a pharmacy to buy drugs except when
to improve education and cut wasteful spending. today chancellor announced her plan to consolidate 13 schools. two will close at the end of the year. others next year. >> it comes down to too many schools being operated. resources can be used better if schools are consolidated. here's a list at the school close scenes at the end of 2003. 2003. two others will close at the end of 2014. 4. >> we need an education! >> reporter: even with the protests, this one outside mayor gray's house earlier this week, there was no stopping many of the school closing the chancellor announced friday. she said she'd start the process of consolidating schools soon. >> ultimately we are paying too much and offering too little. we will be able to expand opportunities at sought after schools across the district. >> reporter: after serious nail- biting there were victories. malcomb x elementary in ward 8 was saved and across town logan circle avoided the ax. >> it is good to know we don't have to worry about them being split up and learning somebody else to work with. and being able to stay where they are comfortabl

the reaching out really happens. he wants to and i want to see him really invest in educating our children. that means universal preschool education. that's true for somebody in rural alabama and in detroit. we really need to invest in infrastructure. he talked about that. that's good for all of america to physically be able to compete in the global economy. but there must be a pathway to jobs for those who are too often left behind. we absolutely have to create a pathway to citizenship. we have to go beyond the dream act to really including people so that not only are they able to contribute but the nation is able to benefit. we need to raise the minimum wage. we need to index it to inflation. these are things that aren't just the people who are black and latino. these are all americans. i think this reaching across requires that we see ourselves and the other. if we can see ourselves in the other, we realize that the agenda for those who are too often left behind is an american agenda >> brown: i have to point out that here we are talking about divided washington, right? divided america
